WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Several representatives from Chemours, the company believed to be dumping the unregulated chemical GenX into the Cape Fear River, refused to answer WECT's questions following a closed-door meeting Thursday.

The representatives waited inside the meeting room as public officials and water utilities leaders who attended the meeting headed to a news conference.

Chemours Senior Communications Manager Gary Cambre told WECT's Marissa Hundley he would only answer written questions that were emailed to him. When asked what he had to say to those worried about drinking the tap water, Cambre said questions should be sent to gary.cambre@chemours.com.

The following are the Chemours representatives who were listed as attending the closed door meeting:

  • Kathy O'Keefe, Chemours Product Sustainability Director
  • Mike Johnson, Chemours Fayetteville Works Environmental Manager
  • Dr. Shawn Gannon, Chemours Toxicology Leader
  • Andrew Hartten, Chemours Remediation Principal
  • Gary Cambre, Chemours Corporate Communications Manager
  • John Merritt, Consultant
